Thursday, September 27, 2012


I know I've been promising to launch our full website for MONTHS now - but, life has taken over and it was put on the back burner for awhile. I'm hoping to have it done by late October. Also I'll be posting a list of ALL the craft shows we will be in for the Fall winter season soon. We have a few fun new products to announce. Including our line of smelling salts the first one is call "Sinus Salts" and is used to help with headache pain, stuffy noses from allergies or colds - it is on our shelf at the Yukon Made Store and will be at the shows this fall. It has been so popular I've decided to introduce a few more blends and will be announcing those soon. Also a lot of interest in "Sappy for Chappy Spruce Butter." I had a number of people over the summer asking if I had a sap based product and others wanting something for eczema so Sappy Chappy was born it is a blend of healing wild rosehip seed oil and rendered spruce sap that has been used traditionally for ages by native people to help with skin issues from diaper rashes, eczema, wind burned skin, psoriasis and a host of other things. Spruce sap works wonders for some people but, it can be a little strong for some people so I strongly urge you to try a sample before you buy it!
I'll be posting more soon!

Thank You Atlin!

Just back from the Atlin music festival. Due to the popularity of our Atlin special edition "Yukon Hippy Hemp Lotion" -  I'll be whipping up some more. If you came by the booth today or last night asking for it and I didn't have any left   - I'll have some on the shelves at the Yukon Made Store in the next couple of weeks (I'll post here when it is there :) . I'll also add it to our online store if you live outside of Whitehorse and would like it shipped to you.

This site and our facebook page will be updated this week so please check back soon if you are looking for more information on products or want to buy online. If you like our products please give us a like on our facebook fan page (link on the side of this page)...

Fireweed Market - In the Cooler!

Just a note to anyone who buys from the Fireweed market store. Our deodorant and toothpaste have been moved to the cooler for the summer months. The reason for this is that our deodorant and toothpaste use coconut butter as a base and are all natural with no artificial preservatives or stabilizers. Coconut butter melts at body temp so please try to keep out of the sun for the trip home :) If your deodorant or toothpaste does melt (it shouldn't unless it gets warmer than room temp there is cacao butter as a stabilizer in our deodorant which gives it a higher melting point) just pop it in the fridge to allow it to reset. These products will stay fresh for up to 6 months.
All our products are made fresh in small batches with no artificial ingredients most products will last for 6 months some for over a year.

We will be at the Atlin Music Fest next month. We'll be booth sharing with Cabin Crafts - lots of goodies. Hope to see you there!

Essential Oils

I've had a few questions from expectant mothers regarding the essential oils used in our products below is a list EOs we commonly use that should be avoided if pregnant because their concentrated aroma can cause blood thinning,  uterine cramps and contractions:
  • Clary sage - used in our Spot Off Oil
  • Sage - Used in our Deodorants
  • Clove - our toothpaste (but in small amounts)
  • Fennel - toothpaste (again in small amounts)
  • Juniper - our conditioner
  • Lemongrass - Bugger Off Bug Away Spray
  • Myrrh - toothpaste (small amounts)
  • Peppermint - toothpaste and nopoo shampoo, also in our lipbalms, lip glosses & vapo rub
  • Rosemary - Bugger Off Bug Away Spray
* please note all these oils are diluted and not at full strength. We strive to make all our products friendly to those with chemical sensitivities and allergies so no product is heavily scented with essential oils (and we never use chemical "perfume" or "fragrance"oils of any kind) - that said proceed with caution and if you are concerned please don't use these products while pregnant. 

Products to consider if pregnant... Our Rosehip Body Butter (rub on your tummy to help prevent/reduce stretch marks), unscented little healers, tea based lipbalms, mica makeups and chemical free hair spray. Shampoos and Conditioners can be made to order with lavender oil instead of mint or juniper just drop us a line to special order.

Yukon Made Store

Just a note that my shelf at the Yukon Made store has been moved to the other side of the store another body care company has been put, in the place I was in (it isn't me!) so if you are looking for my stuff just ask the staff or when you come through the door go to the left instead of the right :)... I noticed I'm out of detox baths and Ms Pit again. I'll be restocking these again on Tuesday this coming week. Also Good Karma has large sized No Poo Shampoo. I'll be finishing up another batch of conditioners by the end of next week.

Coming early next week (finally - hurrah!) LARGE tins of toothpaste mint or orange. You asked for them -we are busy packaging them up.

Just a note to remind customers outside the territory who have requested items in glass bottles. Some of our glass bottled products may freeze and break during the winter months while in transit. We recommend you wait until April to have these items mailed to you. If you wish we will still mail out our glass bottled items but, can not assume the cost if they break during shipping. We are considering using plastic for some items during the winter months for shipping only - please let us know if this is an option you are interested in.
